SB 17 doesn't address most pressing issues for CA voters

  1. 1. 1 SB 17 doesn’t address most pressing issues for CA voters As part of an omnibus poll of California voters, PhRMA commissioned a series of health care questions. As you will see on the following slides: SLIDE 1: California voters are most concerned with the economy and immigration issues. Healthcare is a second-tier issue. SLIDE 2: Voters care more about access to care and quality health coverage, like making sure they get needed medicines and access to their doctor, than the price transparency called for in SB 17 SLIDE 3: On transparency, California voters want more information from insurers about out-of-pocket charges, hospital prices and provider networks than about prescription drug prices.
